One of the Amerks’ biggest rivals were the Buffalo Bisons. The Bisons’ bottle-cap logo is an all-time hockey classic. It came to be because the Pastor brothers, Ruby, Sam and Al were the Buffalo-area bottler of Pepsi-Cola and also bought the hockey Bisons in 1956 from the Jacobs Family (Sportservice). They created the logo as an obvious marketing ploy to promote their soft-drink business. At first the AHL Board of Governors didn’t like the tie-in, but they did like the fact that the Pastors were good, stable and fairly well-to-do owners, so the league relented. The almighty dollar wins again.

Somewhat along those same lines…Anyone wonder how the Jacksonville Jaguars got their name?Well, if anyone can recall the lawsuit over Jaguar the automotive company threatening legal action against the franchise for using a logo that was too similar to their own “leaping cat” logo, there’s actually an interesting twist behind that that is actually quite retarded when one looks at it in retrospect. You see, Jaguar had quite a few corporate and executive offices in the Jacksonville area, and the franchise was named that, somewhat to represent that prescence. Now one would think that naming a football team after your automotive make (especially one as prestigious as Jaguar is perceived to be–even if they are as unreliable as all get-out) would be a good–even ingenious–way to promote your brand, FOR FREE. Well, the folks at Jaguar (owned by Ford, no less) didn’t take too kindly to Jacksonville’s “leaping cat” logo looking so similar to Jaguar’s “leaping cat”, which is why the Jags changed their logo.Has there ever been a more prominent example of automotive head-honcho stupidity?That was a chance for FREE publicity, promotion, and advertisement, and they blew it. Needless to say, the higher-ups at Ford were none too pleased with that move.But anyway, there’s another example that somehow relates to the topic of this thread. amare32 Share this post Victoria Concordia Crescit Assistant to the Travelling Secretary – New York Yankees Next 0 bulldogbarks55 Members Members 0 Share this post 0 Link to post 0 We the North! 0 5,259 posts All Activity 21,575 0 35,628 posts 985 All Activity Moderators Recommended Posts Link to post Location:Tampa, FL Except for the fact that there’s absolutely no requirement that they “match” them.The Packers ruined their road jerseys by trying to match them to the home jerseys. 528 posts Posted September 26, 2006 Share this post Share on other sites Sign in to follow this   3,218 posts 39 1 Posted September 25, 2006 Gothamite 0 Share on other sites I was surprised that the Giants stuck with the throwback road unis again this year.

Chelsea rule player out of action for four weeks after conducting…

first_imgThe 21-year-old’s chances of making it into new manager Maurizio Sarri’s squad were crushed when the Italian sanctioned his loan move to Vitesse Arnhem, a move which is unlikely to help him get back into the Blues squad, even if he manages to impress during his time at the Dutch club.He had a disappointing start to his time at Eredivisie outfit as the winger suffered an injury during the friendly fixture against Royal Antwerp. On September 13th, we covered a report from Dutch newspaper De Gelderlander, who claimed the player has suffered a “serious shin injury”.Musonda returned to Chelsea and Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws also relay what was mentioned by De Gelderlander, suggesting it is a standard procedure for those players to return to the club, who have suffered potentially serious injuries.It was claimed the attacker could be out for several months, but HLN says he will be sidelined only for four weeks, which will come as better news for Musonda, Chelsea and Vitesse as the latter still expect a lot from him.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Volleyball: Castrol crowned DVA ‘B’ division champions

first_imgCastrol Volleyball Club last evening, spiked their way to championship honours in the Demerara Volleyball Association (DVA) ‘B’ division tournament by downing arch-rivals Vanguard Volleyball Club at the National Gymnasium.  It was a relatively easy win for the eventual winners who took the title in straight sets. Castrol’s offence was on point right after the match served off which saw them taking the first set comfortably 25 -11. The second set produced another dominant showing by Castrol who took it 25-7 before Vanguard put up a much tighter display in the third set which wasn’t enough as they narrowly lost 27 – 29 to land on the other side of success, thereby gifting Castrol the sweep. The tournament which began on Saturday was organised by the DVA as part of their development effort and also included Glashow Rangers of Linden. Castrol display their spoils after defeating Vanguard in the final of the DVA ‘B’ division finallast_img read more

Bruno Fernandes Signs For Manchester United

first_imgManchester United confirmed on Thursday they had completed the signing of Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.The 25-year-old has signed a five-and-a-half year contract at Old Trafford with an option to extend for a further year.The long-anticipated deal, with an initial fee of around £47 million ($61.2 million), was finalised after Fernandes, who has 19 international caps, agreed personal terms and passed a medical.“We have been tracking Bruno for many months and everyone here has been tremendously impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team,” said United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.“Most importantly he is a terrific human being with a great personality and his leadership qualities are clear for all to see.”Fernandes said he was delighted to be joining the club, who are fifth in the Premier League table.“My love of Manchester United really started when I used to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play and ever since then I have been a big fan of this great club,” Fernandes explained.“For me, to now play for Manchester United feels incredible.“I have worked hard to get to this moment and I can promise the fans that I will give everything for the badge to help bring us more success and trophies.”Fernandes will bolster United’s midfield ranks. Solskjaer has been short of numbers in that area since the departures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera, while injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have exacerbated the problem.Fernandes has a reputation as a goalscoring, attacking midfielder who can operate centrally or out wide. He can also be deployed defensively.Relatedlast_img read more

Hollywood whodunnit: Arrest made of suspect in Frances McDormand’s Oscar theft

first_imgABC(LOS ANGELES) — On Good Morning America Monday, Lara Spencer reported that newly minted Oscar-winner Frances McDormand nearly had one of her happiest memories stolen from her, when some dude in a tux swiped her brand new Oscar trophy.Fortunately the drama — which Spencer said had the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri actress in tears behind the scenes — was brief. Apparently Wolfgang Puck’s photographer stopped the guy at the annual post-Oscars Governors Awards Ball and got the statue back, and the man then disappeared back into the crowd.The sticky-fingered suspect’s alleged photo was circulated in a tweet by New York Times reporter Cara Buckley.ABC News has confirmed the suspect, Terry Brant, was reportedly arrested at 11:30 p.m. West Coast time and charged with felony grand theft. He remains behind bars with a bail of $20,000.Police are investigating why Bryant was at the event in the first place.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

DJ Durkin, James Brady and everyone else out at Maryland after Jordan McNair’s death

first_imgSporting News compiled a list of Maryland officials, coaches and training staff who have left the school as a result of McNair’s death, and who could go next.STEELE: DJ Durkin disaster reminds Maryland that Big Ten is too big for itWhy was DJ Durkin fired?Durkin was placed on administrative leave soon after the ESPN report, but he then faced calls from McNair’s parents to be fired.Durkin attended the workout where Jordan McNair suffered heatstroke — overseeing alleged miscalculations and abusive behavior from trainers — and was also the one to bring Rick Court to Maryland. He notably told investigators he witnessed some of Court’s verbal abuse but believed Court never crossed a line.The independent commission into the team’s culture stated “both Mr. Durkin and leadership in the athletics department share responsibility for the failure to supervise Mr. Court.”Still, the Maryland Board of Regents recommended university president Wallace Loh retain Durkin following the commission’s findings, a suggestion Loh initially heeded.After strong public backlash to that decision, the school dismissed Durkin on Oct. 31. It now owes him $5.1 million.TIMELINE: Explaining the events that led to DJ Durkin’s firing at MarylandOther Maryland officials fired, resignedRick Court (strength and conditioning coach)Court was the first member of Maryland’s staff to depart, resigning Aug. 13 after an ESPN report implicated him as a key part of the football team’s abusive culture. A later report by an independent commission backed up the initial report with further details on Court’s inappropriate training methods.In an anonymous survey of players done by the independent commission, Court received an average 2.3 out of 5 evaluation rating, which was markedly lower than the average 4.2 rating given to assistant coaches at 32 other institutions.The independent report contains allegations Court threw items around the weight room, knocked food out of a player’s hands as a method of humiliation and used verbal abuse that included homophobic slurs toward players.STEELE: Maryland late doing the right thing with DJ Durkin, so it’s still wrongHe was not found to be at fault for McNair’s death.As part of a settlement, Maryland agreed to pay Court a $315,000 lump sum and absolved him of any legal liability, according to Yahoo Sports reporter Pete Thamel.As many of you know, I resigned yesterday as the head strength coach 4 @TerpsFootball. I wanted 2 thank Coach Durkin & all of my colleagues & players for their support, love & commitment. I am blessed for the relationships I have built and wish nothing but success for our team. pic.twitter.com/llT2HABKUC— Coach Court‼️ (@courtstrength) August 14, 2018James Brady (board of regents chairman)Brady led the board’s controversial recommendation to retain DJ Durkin, and he also reportedly asked Wallace Loh to retain the trainers who misdiagnosed and mishandled Jordan McNair’s heatstroke, contributing to his death.Facing public outrage for his handling of the commission’s report and recommendation, Brady resigned Nov. 1, writing in a statement he believed his “continued presence on the board will inhibit its ability to move Maryland’s higher education agenda forward.”STEELE: No accountability, only shame at MarylandSteve Nordwall (assistant AD of athletic training) and Wes Robinson (head football trainer)Nordwall and Robinson were placed on administrative leave in August after Walter Inc. completed a report into the death of Jordan McNair, which found Nordwall and Robinson did not immediately recognize the severity of McNair’s condition and did not implement a cold water immersion treatment that likely would have saved his life.Robinson allegedly yelled, “Drag his ass across the field” as McNair showed clear signs of medical crisis.The school fired both men Nov. 7, three months after placing them on leave.Others in questionWallace Loh (university president)Current status: Announced he’ll retire in June 2019Loh has been a hugely controversial figure at Maryland even before the death of Jordan McNair, and his leadership this past summer has been further criticized.As detailed in a Sporting News report, Maryland has endured numerous racist incidents — including an alleged hate crime stabbing — under Loh’s watch that have caused large segments of the student population feel unsafe. Several student leaders told Sporting News that Loh did not react quickly or comprehensively to those previous incidents, which put his handling of the football program and McNair’s death under close scrutiny.The independent commission found the school’s administration bears “some responsibility” for ongoing dysfunction in the athletic department.The Washington Post reported Loh received an anonymous letter from a concerned parent about the football team’s abusive culture in 2016. The Post also reported Loh shut down a proposed overhaul of the athletic department’s medical structure the year before McNair’s death.Loh reportedly wanted to fire Durkin right after the completion of the independent commission’s report, but the regents wanted to retain the coach and made it clear to Loh he needed to reinstate Durkin in order to keep his own job. (The regents only have the power to dismiss Loh; all other personnel decisions are delegated to Loh).Rather than taking a stand against the regents, Loh followed their recommendation before reversing course under public criticism.SportsCenter anchor and prominent Maryland alum Scott Van Pelt has called for Loh to leave immediately, joining a subset of the student body that has asking for the same outcome.“It seems like everyone went into cover-your-own-ass mode and the worst type of crab-in-a-bucket behavior imaginable,” Van Pelt said on ESPN. “My question is given their roles in this, how can Wallace Loh and athletic director Damon Evans remain? It feels as if there has to be a complete cultural reset.”But the provost and every academic dean on Nov. 2 signed a letter asking Loh to not retire and instead continue his presidency indefinitely.The provost and every single academic dean signed onto this letter, which was just sent to the entire campus. It absolutely slams the Board of Regents and implores Loh to reconsider his retirement. pic.twitter.com/AARmDc1PS2— Jillian Atelsek (@jillian_atelsek) November 1, 2018Damon Evans (athletic director)Current status: Has not faced any formal repercussionsBefore becoming the athletic director in the spring, Evans helped oversee the football program in an administrative role. Along with Wallace Loh, has served as a public face for Maryland throughout the Jordan McNair investigation, speaking to the media at multiple press conferences. Evans left his previous post at the University of Georgia on bad terms, having been arrested for a DUI, caught apparently having an affair with a woman and trying to bribe an officer.Evans, who is still married with two children, faced allegations of an improper relationship with a subordinate at Maryland. He was cleared by a university inquiry and maintains his innocence, though several members of the athletic department said the situation disrupted their work.This story will be updated if any additional personnel moves are made. In the aftermath of Jordan McNair’s death, which came as a result of the heatstroke he suffered at a Maryland football workout, several University of Maryland system employees have been dismissed or resigned, including head coach DJ Durkin and James T. Brady, the board of regents chairman.The fallout may not be over. Amid student protests across campus and intense public criticism, Maryland is facing pressure to completely overhaul its administration.last_img read more

Kay, Olson continue streaks at Davenport

first_imgBy Mike McGuireDAVENPORT, Iowa (July 10) – Justin Kay and Tony Olson both added to their local win totals Friday at Davenport Speedway.Kay captured his fifth straight feature in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Models but it wasn’t an easy win.Mike Zemo Jr. jumped out to the early lead from the pole. Zemo held off Brunson Behning through­out the first half of the race and slowly started to pull away. Kay finally reeled in Zemo in the closing laps and took the lead coming to the white flag.The victory was Kay’s fifth in five starts this season. Behning passed Zemo on the final lap for second. Zemo broke a gear but still finished third.Olson notched win number four in the Hawkeye Auto IMCA Northern SportMod feature. Olson went from 10th starting to first in less than two laps. He had a full straightaway lead by lap five and cruised the rest of the way to the win.Dustin Crear was best of the rest, finishing second. Bryce Garnhart took third ahead.Rich Smith scored win number one in the Milan Heating & Air IMCA Modified feature. Smith started third and passed Ben Chapman on lap six for the lead. On the following lap, the two leaders and Joe Beal collided in turn two, with Chapman ending up on the hook.Smith continued on to take the win over Beal and Bob Dominacki.last_img read more

Maryland-Purdue Preview

first_imgMaryland will face Purdue tonight in a huge matchup of conference powers. The Terps are coming off losing 2 of 3, with losses coming against Saint Bonaventure in the Emerald Coast Classic and at Syracuse in the Big Ten/ACC challenge.The Terps, and more specifically  will need to cut down on turnovers in such a high-profile game, averaging over 20 in their last few games. Kevin Huerter was fantastic in Monday’s game against the Orange, making 7 3s. He will need to keep up his stellar play if Maryland wants to compete tonight. Justin Jackson’s size at the 3 really helped Maryland against this team last year, and they’re smaller this time around so that advantage must be exploited in my opinion.Purdue comes in unranked, but this is the first time they’re not in the top 25 this entire season. The Boilermakers were dropped due to their poor performance in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament over thanksgiving weekend, in which they lost two of three games. They’re bolstered by a seasoned core of Isaac haas, Vincent Edwards, and Dakota Mathias who have helped them weather the storm since the departure of Caleb Swanigan after last season.The game should be close, and although the Terps may not have the national pedigree of the Boilermakers, they will have a very loud Xfinity Center behind them as always, especially on a Friday. Two of the most talented centers in all of college basketball, let alone the Big Ten will face off tonight in Bruno Fernando and Isaac Haas, so a lot of eyes will be on that clash. The last three meetings between these teams have been extremely close, finishing within one possession every time and I see no reason for that to change tonight. I think the home Terps pull out the win 76-74.Please follow and like us:last_img read more
